Motorcycle efficiency - gasoline and fun

This morning's Ithaca Journal has a letter from Greg Kimbell of Dryden, extolling the virtues of motorcycles both for miles per gallon (78mpg available!) and fun per gallon.

There's also an article on the state legislature's latest attempt to buy votes. The governor vetoed their "rebate checks in October, just before the election" approach, but now the Senate and Assembly think they've found a way to bypass the Governor and send out "rebate applications in September, just before the election."

They could, of course, concentrate on permanent solutions to New York's fiscal and other problems, but I suspect they that this will insure that their re-election rates remain historically high, after the very few losses and close calls they had last time.
